On a delightful harbour situated just south of New Zealand’s Bay of Islands, sits the country’s most northerly city. Known as the “City of 100 Beaches”, Whangarei has an impressive variety of scenic attractions and activities for visitors to enjoy. The Town Basin is a picturesque area in which to shop and eat or visit one of the city’s local museums, such as The Clock Museum or The Whangarei Art Museum. Close to downtown lies Mount Parihaka, a volcanic landmark that offers panoramic views of the city by way of a scenic track. To the north of the city, the Tikipunga area delivers another spectacular natural feature, the Whangarei Falls, a local beauty spot where the Hatea River drops an astonishing 85 feet. New Zealand’s enormous kauri trees can also be seen here, at the AH Reed Memorial Kauri Park, which features a lovely canopy walkway through the remaining remnants of the old kauri forest. Situated on a natural harbour, the city’s coastline offers plenty of opportunities for scenic walks, including Whangarei Heads, a stunning peninsular dotted with white sandy beaches and volcanic peaks. Here you can find a rich diversity of wildlife amongst the forest terrain, which is also home to a kiwi sanctuary. For a peaceful place to spend a few hours, there are many parklands throughout the city where you can enjoy a picnic or get up close to native flora and fauna. If you want to discover New Zealand’s scenic landscape and native wildlife from a vibrant city location then Whangarei offers the best of both experiences.
The city is a wonderful destination to visit all through the year, due to its warm, temperate climate. If you want to visit at the warmest time of the year, then the months of December through to February generally offer the highest temperatures.
New Zealand’s summer spans December through to February, so if you want to visit at a cheaper time of year when attractions are less crowded, book your trip during the cooler winter months around the middle of the year.
The CityLink bus service provides a regular timetable of buses than run around the city area to the suburbs. Bus routes also run to other cities, such as Paihia and Auckland. If you prefer to take a taxi, there are several taxi companies within the city.
